I am Mason. I am 8 years old. I felt sick for a few days with a sore throat, body aches, after a few days my tongue felt like sandpaper. It was all red and my lips were chapped. Not long after that my whole body turned red. On day 5 my mom took me to the ER as she knew something wasn’t right. Fortunately for me, the Dr. recognized it immediately. I have a huge fear of needles and normally scream, kick, fight, do whatever I can to not have a needle in me. But this day, I only fought and screamed for 30 seconds. Now I am on day 8 and still have the IV in me. I am doing better now after the IVIG, and hope to go home from the hospital soon. I will tell you the migraines after the IVIG put me down sleeping for a long time.
